of this campaign to win for the president and for the senator brown. his close ally in the united states senate. >> e.j., we just got a piece of an videotape in, an interview he did with nbc's ron allen. i want to play it for you and get your reaction afterwards. here it is. >> one thing you seem to have trouble convincing people of, you are the person that cares about middle class people, people are struggling. they don't see in your background and your comments the kind of empathy and understanding that could really solve their problems. >> i think people had the chance who watched our republican convention to see the lives i've had a chance to touch during my life. to understand that i served as a pastor of a congregation with people of all different backgrounds and economic circumstances. that i care very deeply about the american people and people of different socioeconomic circumstances. and i think throughout this campaign as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't

with today. rowe talked about putting these people back to work and so has the president of the united states. when president obama tried to sell his jobs bill last year over the refusal of the republican congress, he talked about the kinds of people who would get those kinds of jobs. >> it's a bill that would put people back to work, rebuilding america. repairing our roads, repairing our bridges, repairing our schools. it would lead to jobs for concrete workers like the ones here at hilltop, jobs for construction workers and masons, carp carpenters, electricians, engineers, ironworkers. put folks back to work. >> mike rowe said part of the problem was training. >> jobs depend on opportunity and training. over and over, that's what i hear, we need more opportunity and we need better training. >> once again, there is a candidate who believes in job training, who understands we need more vocational training. >> one of the, i believe, mistakes we've made 20, 30 years ago was to start de-emphasizes vocational education. right now we've got shortages of folks in fields that need technical training

-thirds are devoted to foreign investments. maybe this is why romney's returns list the united states of america as a foreign country. you can understand the confusion. romney's blind trust investments also raised eyebrows. romney himself has called a blind trust an age-old rouge. instead, you can give a blind trust rules. but in his 2011 returns, romney didn't have many rules about chinese investments. mitt romney all along has been the candidate who says president obama did not stand up to china. romney has railed against china's trade tactics. >> my own view on the relationship with china is this. china is stealing our patents, our designs, know-how, brand names. they are hacking into our computers steeling information from not only corporate computers but government computers and manipulating their currency. for those who don't understand the impact of that, i have seen it. i have seen it. >> tough talk, right? none of these things stopped romney from allowing chinese investments into his portfolio. his returns show the romney family owning shares of a chinese oil company. romney dumped the

became president of the united states. the romney/ryan plan, here's the list, folks. cut pell grants for more than nine million students, eliminate head start programs for two million children, and cut $5 billion in title one funding for low-income and special needs students. good plan? republicans want to cut funding for public education because, you see, they have a different plan. >> the great thing about charter schools is if they fail, you close them. you invoke their charter. i believe that difference is one of the reasons charter schools has been able to improve the quality of education of those students who beat their path to the door. >> really? improve? a study showed charter schools are twice as likely to underperform rather than overperform. but who cares when you can make a buck? we don't want to pay attention to stanford. speaking of money, this is the other reason ryan and romney, see i always put ryan's name first because that's really what the conservatives want. the reason why romney and ryan want to slash public education, here it is. >> the teachers unions are abl

're going to cut and what we're going to tax to get our treasury in order. but we've got a united states senator who backs up mitt romney and his rate, saying he is very generous. it's all a game. it's all a big game. make no mistake. romney gamed the tax code. he basically picked his own tax rate and his accountants played around with deductions so they could hit the predetermined rate near 14%. would you take it? meanwhile, romney still won't explain the specifics of his tax plan for you and me, americans. >> we bring down rates, we limit deductions and exemptions to keep the progressivity in the code and encourage growth in jobs. >> and the devil is in the details. what are we talking about? mortgage deduction? >> the devil is in the detail, the angel is in the policy which is creating more jobs. >> let's get one thing straight. tax cuts for the rich do not create jobs. this is the top marginal tax rate from 1948 to 2010. you be the judge. it's gone down quite a bit. here's unemployment over the same period. it's very hard to argue lower taxes do anything worthwhile for jobs, but romn

incredible disappointment. i mean, disappointment in that you have a candidate for president of the united states of america, from one of our two major parties, who essentially, very easily and dismissi ivived wrote off half the country. what about the 20 million senior citizen who don't pay income taxes? are they victims? what about our veterans? what about middle class, hard-working families? it's just -- it's just incredibly disappointing. and i'll tell you, just a quick story. i was home in my district this morning, and i was in a supermarket. and i was ordering lunch. and the woman on the other side of the counter recognized me. and she said, oh, my gosh, she said, what that man said -- she said, i'm not a victim. i mean, this is how deeply that has sunk in. that's what i think the problem is. >> i think it is sinking in. and republicans in senate and house races, as i said just a moment ago, are going to have to go home and answer to this. what do they think about this? this is putting them in a real tough spot. do you really think that this is going to affect races? is this a real o
